Welcome to the RayForce WikiEdit

This Wiki describes about the setting material of RayForce, the most beautiful and impressive shmup ever.

We would like to introduce to the whole world how great RayForce is by translation of the setting material named "RAYFORCE MISSION DATA FILE" attached to the soundtrack of RayForce.

We are Japanese and not good at English, so syntax and expression reviews are welcome.

What is RayForce?Edit

RayForce is a vertical scrolling shooting style arcade game released by Taito in 1994. It was titled as "Gunlock" in Europe, and it was renamed "Layer Section" (in Japan) or "Galactic Attack" (in North America and Europe) in Sega Saturn. It was later ported to Windows and iOS as well.

Is it true that RayForce is most beautiful and impressive? Seeing is believing. Please watch the video of playing RayForce and see its dramatic effects by music and visuals.
